“Public transportation key to assisting individuals living on low income.”

The Halton Poverty Roundtable commends Ontario Transportation Minister Glen Murray on his decision to extend GO train services through Oakville and Burlington to every 30 minutes.  This creates greater flexibility and access for those dependent on public transit; and increases its attractiveness to all: reducing congestion and stress, improving our environment, our health, our economic vitality.

The Halton Poverty Roundtable is particularly conscious of public transit’s potential for individuals living on lower incomes: increasing their access to jobs – and their ability to engage socially: as volunteers, or with their children for sports and recreation opportunities.
